Warveteran: I agree with you 100% on veterans’ health care. As I stated earlier in a different thread about veterans’ benefits, addressed to TinCanMan: "I will be glad to discuss Veterans’ Health Care (the issue here) with you however I will not reply to your self absorbed and disrespectful posts." I believe your assumption that this individual is closed and narrow minded is a correct diagnosis. Let’s direct “our” energy in a direction that will help our fellow veteran. R&D funding is being decreased at time when we need more research and development to care for our OIF Veterans. http://www.aaas.org/spp/rd/va06h.htm I believe we are starting to make progress in the House and in the Senate..!! Let’s focus on how we can help our fellow veteran, not judge them on their service longevity as would be the case with some. The problem is funding, funding and funding..!!!
